TEL AVIV – An American scholar and radio personality said that the “Zionist-controlled media” was behind Islamophobia, according to an interview released by Iranian state news agency PressTV on Tuesday.
Dr. Kevin Barrett, a former professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the wave of terror attacks all over the world was not carried out by Islamists, rather they were perpetrated as “false-flag” operations by the American and Israeli armies.

False-flag operations are secret missions designed to deceive the public into thinking the operations were carried out by someone else.
“The neoconservatives wanted to create a situation in which the people would hate Muslims due to these false flag terror events,” said Dr. Kevin Barrett, who Press TV cites as being a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance.
Barrett continues by saying that the American public is being tricked by the mainstream media which is controlled by Zionists.
“We know from all sorts of research that Zionist Jews are wildly over-represented in the US media,” he said.
He also contended that the Zionists and the mainstream media have a sinister plan to use the false-flag attacks in order to vilify Muslims and gather support for Republican hopeful Donald Trump.
“It’s understandable that ordinary Americans who aren’t really paying attention, who are getting their propaganda from this hate-mongering media apparatus would be vulnerable to a hate-monger like Donald Trump,” Barrett said.
According to Barett, the Zionist tactic is also targeted at convincing the American people to engage in war with Muslim states.
In December of last year, Barrett claimed in another interview on Press TV that the San Bernardino shootings, as was the case with 9/11, were also false flag attacks.
